Undergraduates

Some of our strongest researchers started out as undergraduate volunteers. Please take a look at these FAQs to learn more about our general requirements and application process:

Who can join the lab? Current undergraduate students at UCSD can apply to volunteer in the lab, or complete undergraduate course work such as a BISP 199 or BISP 197. Students in the Division of Biological Sciences with a major in Neurobiology are given preference although all students that apply will be considered on an individual basis if a position is available.
What type of commitment is expected from volunteers?
UCSD undergraduate student volunteers are required to commit a minimum of 10 hours a week for at least 2 consecutive quarters or longer.
I would like to join the lab. How do I apply?
Talented and highly motivated undergraduate students are welcome to send e-mail inquiries to either jleutgeb@ucsd.edu or sleutgeb@ucsd.edu for available opportunities. Please include an up to date resume, contact information for 2 references, and a list of Neuroscience, Data Science, or Cognitive Sciences courses that have been successfully completed. Please also list any computer experience and coding languages you are proficient in.
